Marketing Tips


Marketing a Commercial Locksmiths Business

The value and earning capacity of a commercial locksmiths business largely depends on the quality of its marketing efforts. But great marketing takes a lot more than hanging a shingle and hoping for the best.

Novice marketers are typically unprepared for the challenge of promoting brands and products in the competitive arena.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.

Promotional Calendars

Sloppy marketing programs have no place in growing commercial locksmiths businesses. A strategy chocked full of time-sensitive ad placements and other tactics can devolve into a tangled mess of overlapping deliverables unless it is coordinated in a promotional calendar. Good calendars include not only tactical deadlines, but also schedules for the inputs (e.g. staff assets, vendors, etc.) that are required to execute strategic objectives. When used in tandem with a quality mailing list provider, promotional calendars can ensure the continuous execution of direct mail campaigns.

Hiring A Marketing Firm

Many commercial locksmiths business operations turn to marketing firms for guidance. Professional marketers are usually on the bleeding edge of the industry and boast better returns for the investment than internal marketing units. Cost is a consideration, but if you're thinking about hiring a marketing firm for your commercial locksmiths business, experience should trump other considerations. Avoid young marketing firms staffed exclusively with inexperienced hot shots. Novice marketers bring a lot of passion to the table, but they also tend to embrace high-risk marketing strategies that lack the payoff you'll get from an established firm.


Despite the unrelenting demands of generating content on a monthly or quarterly basis, a company newsletter has promising potential as a marketing device. Unlike flyers and other advertising mediums, newsletters have an informational focus. In fact, the best newsletters encourage customers to take the next step without ever asking for a sale. It's not unusual for commercial locksmiths businesses rely on newsletters as cornerstones of a deliberate PR and marketing strategy, combining print and online distribution channels.
